19 miles south of Marfa on paved RM 169.
As one leaves the pavement and drives a few hundred yards across a grassy flat with scattered desert low brush, the view is eastward toward miles of distant high rim-rock. That grassy flat tumbles quickly into hills and a rock escarpment as a home etched into the sloping hillside comes into view. The viewshed from this hillside home is magnificent as one gazes across cottonwood-lined Perdiz Creek and the Alamito Creek valley stretching easterly to the rim-rock and canyons leading up to the Mitchell Flats. To the south, jagged San Jacinto Peak and Tascotal Mesa appear in the distance.
Hawk Hill is entirely state mineral classified whereby the state owns the minerals, the surface owner acts as an agent for the state in leasing those minerals, and any income generated by bonuses, delay rentals or royalty is split between the state and surface owner on a 50-50 basis. The minerals are not leased.
Hawk Hill boasts a very fine southwestern style home with many custom features. According to the Presidio County Appraisal District the home contains 3168 square feet and has around 861 square feet of porches. The 4 bedroom/4 bath home was built in 1960 and has been completely renovated using the highest quality materials.
The property is watered by two wells and the house water is excellent.
This classic West Texas homestead is a jewel in the desert. It is very private with the home not visible from the pavement, yet it is only 20 minutes from Marfa. It has a world of scenery from its comfortable porch with nothing but larger ranches in its vast Chihuahuan Desert viewshed.
